Assuring young people’s safety and inclusion is not political.

Our democracy can only survive if  young people are taught that disagreement is not disrespect; and we are all committed to creating and protecting the environment for civil discourse.

 Our history is not just words in a book and dates to be memorized.  Our history is about a country struggling to uphold the belief that all people have inalienable rights and that this core value builds and strengthens our communities

Schools across the country were unprepared after the results of the 2016 election. Many educators and parents not only struggled with their own reactions but also felt distinctly uncomfortable discussing the new political landscape with young people.

We are developing a partnership with thought leaders, schools, teachers, and experts, and young people to create materials for the 2020 election cycle including lesson plans, discussion guides, webinars, professional development, videos, and more.
